If your covered have lost luster, this is solved easily.

clean stainless steel

Everything under the sink spotless. Nothing easier. Rub, after scrubbing with soap, half a lemon, rinse with water and dry.

The fumes coming off the bins of PVC fittings

In my service van sure stink.
Running water through pipes probably keeps the parts-per-million down, but like lead in brass fixtures, they are trying to get away from contaminants in potable water in the plumbing industry.
Using PVC in flower planters is probably fine, but I would not want to plant my vegetables in PVC pots.
Maybe that is just me, just saying.

Dude?

I used to work at an antique salvage company in Seattle. We used to have plumbing fixtures re-plated all the time. Old sink faucets and bathtub faucets are all brass. When we would get nice ones that were all pitted or just in bad shape, we would remove the old plating and then buff them until they are glass smooth again and then we would send them to a local plater who would plate them in nickle or chrome. I think that you just need to check around your area more. If they don't plate brass, what the heck do they plate then?

    I cleaned mine with salt, flour, and vinegar. Then baking soda and vinegar. Does anyone have any more ideas? They have a white residue on them now. I used a toothbrush to clean them.

  • Avatar angel2003 What are some things that you do around the house to keep it clean?
    Nov 10, 2007 by angel2003 | Posted in Cleaning & Laundry

    I am getting ready to move into our first home. We've always lived in an apartment and I am trying to make sure that I stay on top of the cleaning so that I don't wind up overwhelmed...it's almost a 4,000 square foot home and I KNOW that I am going to be a busy woman. I am a stay at home mother … asked, I was really looking for more of a list of chores that people can come up with. I am making the spreadsheet and need ideas, perhaps something that I didn't think of, of other chores to add to the spreadsheet and in turn put into my cleaning routine! Please help me out if you can! Thanks!

    • Congratulations on your new home!

      I am also a stay-at-home mom (kids 8, 5, and 18 months); here's my basic schedule, plus a few jobs I schedule so I don't forget them.

      Monday: pick up, dust, and vacuum; groceries
      Tuesday: errands (cleaner or laundromat, Targe …; check bathroom supplies.

      You understand, with a small child in the house, some of these jobs get pushed back. Also, with a list like this it's easier to get help from the other people in the house. I like having a clean house but I don't do it to the exclusion of a happy family.

  • Avatar Bozz Mozz What's the green coating on the brass in the bathroom?
    May 03, 2008 by Bozz Mozz | Posted in Cleaning & Laundry

    Not a big fan of brass, so I don't know much about it. There's an almost antiqe-ish green outer coating on the sink fixtures. It doesn't look like a germfest, but it's far from beautiful. I can't scrub it off. I'm kind of a clean freak, and it's making me nuts. How do I get it off?
    I have to extend this question while I try the ketchup! I love home remedies.
    Well that didn't work. I'll try some of these other methods.

    • The green coating is from reacting with the air and moisture which is called oxidation, You can use a product called NevrDull also Tomato Ketchup wiped on with a rag and polished off with a soft dry cloth Good Luck !
